A very well organised tour lead by a very enthusiast young man. Not the longest or most informative brewery tour we've done but it was a pleasant way to spend an hour. My over riding impression was the company set up by 3 Marketing guys was that it was absolute Marketing triumph, emphasis on recycling, green initiatives, treating staff well... More

If you were exploring Toronto during the whole day, steam whistle is a good place to finish your day with a beer! Good beer, but the tour is not big deal...

Went there purlley by accident, but this is an excellent place with a lots of history inside. Next to Canada Train Museum. They are offering few tickets and I recommend one with a glass (a very cool souvenir). For aroun 10 dollars you get to find out a history of this very fine brewery, taste (a lot if you smile)...

This place just popped up as we were wondering through the Skydome area. Bam! Just like that. Spent 3 hours there and met some great people from all over Canada, and some from Europe. (TORONTO = Indian for Meeting Place) (STEAMWHISTLE = TORONTO = MEETING PLACE) A must see , when in the city. Beer is not to strong, but... More

A really great fun tour with free samples and relaxed atmosphere. The beer is delicious as well! Great value and would definitely go again. We ended up staying at the bar long afterwards to have a few more bottles and some food.

Can't really go wrong with this one. $10 got us a fun 30 minute tour, lots of free samples, a bottle of fresh beer to drink whilst on the tour and a souvenir pint glass to take away (the other option was a case of 6 bottles). At the end of the day this is advertising at its finest but... More

Fresh beer , great tour, had the hot bagel, and bought some hats. Learned about the history and craft of beer making and enjoyed some samples along the way. A great experience!

Very interesting place. We just stopped for a beer and ended up taking tour! The guys at the counter were fun and really liked their jobs.... Who wouldn't like giving samples of beer out all day! Lol but they made it hard to resist the tour!

Really enjoyed the visit. Brewery in fantastic building. Tour was interesting and well presented (been on a few tours and this was the best). Samples before the tour and a crisp, cold bottle during. Great beer... and the growler bottles look amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good beer. Would definitely go back if I visit Toronto again.
